How to Tell if Your Pipes Are Clogged

How to tell pipes are clogged

One of the most common problems that homeowners encounter with their plumbing systems is clogged or dirty drains and pipes. When the drains or pipes in your plumbing system become clogged, it can cause problems throughout the rest of the system, and you’ll need to have drain cleaning services performed by our professional Brentwood plumbing contractors to get rid of the issues. If the clogs are bad enough, you may even need to have the pipes replaced if the damage is extensive enough.

Before you call In Demand Plumbing for services, however, you’ll need to able to identify the problem. So how can you tell if your plumbing system’s pipes are clogged? Our plumbers have compiles a few of the most common signs:

Weak Water Flow

The first sign that can alert you to a problem with your pipes is a weak water flow. Whether the water in your Brentwood home isn’t flowing as quickly or as strongly as it should be, it’s probably a problem with your pipes.

Homeowners often blame this problem on simply having “weak water pressure”, but it reality, their pipes need a thorough cleaning. Water pressure should be consistent not only throughout your home, but also throughout the homes in the area in which you live. There shouldn’t be any variation from room to room, and if you notice a neighbor’s water pressure is better than your own, the trouble is mostly likely rooted in your pipes.

Inconsistent Water Flow Throughout Your Home

You check the water throughout your home to be certain that the flow is similar at each outlet. If you find one faucet with a lower flow-rate, you should investigate it further. This should also prompt you to check out your Brentwood home’s pipe system, and you should probably call a professional for assistance.

Cleaning or Replacing Pipes

Any showers, toilets, sinks, or whirlpools in your home will not be able to function properly if your plumbing system is suffering from inadequate water flow. So before you install any new plumbing fixtures in your Brentwood home, you should ensure that your pipes and drains are clean and in great condition.
